It is a lot of work and you need to structure your days to survive! If you sign up for the full-time course you won`t have time to be a perfectionist so be prepared. I would advise you to bring your mindfulness exercises with you and as long as you keep breathing you can have a lot of fun! You will learn a lot on this course and meet some amazing people. There is always Spanish wine to help you along your way!
This was a very impactful course with plenty of knowledge covered in a short period of time. The course as mentioned is intense and you will need to gather all the skills you have to keep up with the assignments. That being said, the staff are always there to help you complete everything in the time you have. The course has been incredible and a recommendable experience!
The course was quite intense, however I had amazing help from Esme, Megan and Charles. I was definitely very grateful for the week break in the course! The experience is a rollercoaster ride so you need to be dedicated and give yourself the time required to complete the course.
Great experience - intense, but well worth it! I would particularly recommend it to those interested in teaching in Spain afterwards!
I feel like we were warned well in advance how intense this course was going to be, so I was prepared to give up my life for a month and work really hard. I enjoyed the course and feel like doing it over 5 weeks rather than 4 really helped me manage the workload. I would advise anyone who thinks they may struggle with the intensity of the course to also consider the 8-week part-time option.
The TEFL course was a lot of work. I spent more time on preparing my classes and my homework that I used to spend at my full-time job! I learned so much though!
It is one of the most intense things I have done in my life but also one of the most rewarding!
I absolutely loved it! Lots of hard work, but if you are really serious about teaching, this is the place to be! The tutors and the staff are lovely. Definitely recommended!
It was an amazing experience. It was very intense although we didn’t have much free time. It was 8 hours of work at the TEFL in Spain training centre and then additional hours at home including weekends. The quality of the input sessions was very high and the trainers are highly qualified and helpful. The administrative staff were all amazing and very supportive too. I feel like I have spent a full year doing this course and have learnt a lot and I am very grateful for the experience.
This is a tough course with regards to workload. It is totally worth it though. The trainers know what they are doing and they have nothing but pearls and wisdom to offer (you might not always like it, but you will always benefit from what they have to say). I would champion TEFL in Spain always!
Nobody can explain how intense this course is. It is extremely intense and very demanding but the whole TEFL in Spain team are incredible and very supportive. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and have had the pleasure of meeting some truly incredible people – friends for life!
This was the hardest, most intense course I have ever done but it was made up of group of amazing people. On the first day we created a whatsapp group so that we could communicate throughout the month and support each other. The location of TEFL in Spain was great and the experience was also great. I am so glad I did it!
The course is a full-time commitment so don’t expect lots of free time to see Malaga! You will leave this course having gained immensely and have some incredible new friends.
I really enjoyed the course. It was a lot of work, but if you keep up to date with the assignments you will be fine. Discipline is the keyword here. Our group was fantastic and I met great people! Malaga is a great city. At first I wasn’t sure about the course or if I would have the skills to be a teacher but the guidance of the tutors was fantastic and I am happy I did the course now. I am able to do many things, of which I thought I could not do.
I have just successfully completed the TEFL in Spain part-time course in Malaga. I have really enjoyed the course. It has been extremely challenging juggling a young family, new puppy and the course. For those reasons I would recommend the part-time course to anyone in similar circumstances. The teaching practice has been very useful for my new career in TEFL. Finally, the tutors have been great and always willing to help out! Thanks TEFL in Spain.
I was warned that it would be hard work. Nothing can really prepare you for the tasks, assignments and deadlines – but if you keep on track with it all from the beginning it is an experience you will not forget.
I have never got to know a group of people so well in such a short period of time. It is the group of trainees and the trainers that pull you through all of the ups and downs that you experience on the TEFL course. The ups are the feelings that you have just after teaching – when you realise the students have really learnt something from you! The downs are the evenings when you just want to go home and sleep and digest everything that you have taken in, instead of staying up late to finish your journal. It is an intense experience but you will get so much out of it!
I thoroughly enjoyed the TEFL course in Malaga, Spain. The course was way more intense than I expected. If I did it again I would be more energised!
First class learning experience. A lot to take in but once done the information you have acquired will set you on your way to great experiences in the teaching world. Thoroughly recommended!
Everyone was very nice but the course was really intense and demanding but also very rewarding at the same time. Time management is key!
This course is a lot of work but it is enjoyable and rewarding. You need to be willing to put in the work.
This course is not for the faint hearted! If you are determined to gain the knowledge that will set you on your path of teaching English as a vocation then this course is it. If you are taking the course to teach while on vacation then think again. “Tough” doesn’t do it justice! 100% dedication is needed for this course.
An experience of a lifetime! I gained plenty of new friends whilst gaining my TESOL certificate – a win-win situation. Everyone was so friendly and supportive and the experience gained was definitely worthwhile. I would do it all over again just for the experience!
The 4-week TEFL course is intensive but rewarding. You will learn a great deal however be prepared to say goodbye to your social life. You will make lots of friends and the weather is a plus in Malaga! I recommend that you join the course at TEFL in Spain as it will be worth it!
I really enjoyed the course. I have learned so much these last few weeks that will help me in the future as an English teacher. You will have plenty of work to keep you busy but you will make many friends along the way!
If you are ready this now to get an idea of the course then I tell you now, you wont! Make sure you feel well and you have nothing else in your head apart from the will to teach! Then you need to just go there and let it happen!
I knew this course was intense, but I didn’t expect such a big work load! I honestly thought at times that i couldn’t do it, but TEFL prepares you for this so never give up! Great experience!
By now you will have read and heard the stories from the trainees saying “It’s like nothing you’ve ever done before! It is extremely stressful and you need to stop your life while doing the course”! It is all true and it is not something that anyone can prepare you for. If you are serious about a teaching career than I advise you come and get on the roller-coaster!

Malaga! Sun, sea and sand. Wow! What an absolutely great course! TEFL in Spain in Malaga was just the right place for me to have gained my TEFL certificate. The course was very intense (even as a part-time course), but every minute was worth it. The teaching practice sessions were a very valuable part of the course. I would recommend the being done specifically at TEFL in Spain to everyone.

Even though it was quite stressful it has been one of the best experiences I have had in my life. The trainers were great! They were always supportive and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for better peers either as they were always cheerful, helpful and supportive. I have made friends for life on this course. I have not only become a teacher but I have also grown as a person. On the course there was such a variety of nationalities, cultures, ages and points of view. This was amazing to be able to share this experience with beautiful and interesting people. I am really sad that it is over and that I have to say goodbye to a lot of people.
You need to be very honest with yourself if you want to become an English teacher. Are you ready to sacrifice your life for 4 weeks? If yes, then this is the best course you can do! It is hard, it is intense, you will cry, you will laugh…but it is totally worth it!
The TEFL course in Malaga, Spain is incredibly intense, but I met some amazing people and together we had great memories, lots of laughs and everyone was so supportive. You really have to forget your life for 4 weeks, but at the end, you realise how far you have all come and how much you have all achieved in such a short period of time.
Hello future TEFL trainees! As a survivor I would like to tell you to be prepared. The amount of work that is required during this course is something I would never have imagined, but the course and teachers are very good!

It is a really amazing course! The TEFL course in Malaga, Spain changed my life! I learnt a lot during the course. Personally for me, this was the first time I had experienced working be able to work and mix with so many different people and friends. It was a great opportunity for me to learn and study.
It has been a very positive experience overall. I have met so many really beautiful people both staff and peers. It has been challenging and intense. In the main it has been absolutely exhilarating!
TEFL in Spain was one of the best experiences in my life. They didn’t lie when they said it’s intense, but in the end it’s more than just worthwhile! The whole TEFL team is very nice and supportive, providing you all the information you need. I really recommend this course to anyone who wants to become an English teacher. Thank you again
My month in Malaga studying the TEFL course has been one of the busiest, most intense and BEST of my life. I can’t begin to explain how all-consuming it is and how much I got out of it. There was no part of my time that wasn’t entirely occupied. The teachers, the staff, the IT guy – everyone is here to provide support, and better, up for a laugh. I’ve made some lifelong friends and started the my career with a bang. I couldn’t recommend it any more. ALL the love in the world for these people!!
Oh my soul!!! I have just been assessed by the moderator from Trinity College! I passed *happy dance* and am now an accredited Trinity CertTesol Level 5 Teacher of English as a Foreign Language!!! One month of intense teaching, lesson plans, one on one guidance and surviving on 4 hours of sleep!!! yes sooooo worth it! Thinking of a life changing event? Come to TEFL in Spain!!! Thanks to the amazing team here in Malaga!!!!!
